Morning Glory

I'm moving on in SYTYC! My project was the repurposed dress, Morning Glory. Go HERE for the tutorial.
This was my entry post:

I love repurposing clothes that would normally be passed over and instead making something beautiful. I used a men’s dress shirt, a very large woman’s shirt, and an old jumper to make a dress that could fit right in at Shabby Apple.

1

The marigold yellow top, ruffled accent around the neckline and down the front, and sweet sleeves beautifully pop in contrast with the gray, button down skirt.

2

An old elastic belt with a flower clip embellishment allows for a transition between fun and function—making this dress perfect for work, church, or a night out!

Who would have thought that these outcasts could be upcycled into something so lovely?
